The scanning application and libkscan library which were formerly included in kdegraphics – KDE/kooka. Kooka has been the scan application of choice for the KDE project and is an official part of the KDE Graphics Package. However, Kooka has been dropped from. Start Kooka from the main menu or enter the command kooka. When started, Kooka opens a three-frame window with a menu bar to the upper left and a toolbar.

A New Scanner with XSANE and Kooka

Scan an image to PDF I use gnome; is there a similar program in gnome? The time now is Kooka has a print button, and XSANE allows access to Gimp with which one can csan at least in theory; this is something I haven’t yet pursued.

Is this so, test the scanner as showed to you in Lesson 2. Page 1 of 2 1 2 Last Jump to page: You might post the error messages you’re getting when “The K programs don’t work”. You are asked in the new opening “Kooka Save Assistent” window, in which format you want to store the image. To my knowledge in some jurisdictions there is the concept of “fair use” which includes quotes of ill-defined length.

Try the other scanning programs included with opensuse I think vuescan has solved this problem by leaving enough space in the subwindows for the biggest set of options. Top right, in the pane “Image Viewer” and below it right the scanned image is shown.

I haven’t found either of the OCR programs that Kooka has used particularly good. It does not remember that a view was opened, or hwere it was opened it does open views in the upper left corner, always, and always at an usuable small window size But the scans are not bad, at least with my scanner, the defaults are better than the ones xsane is using.

About kooka, I’m not so sure if it is a bug what I see, there might be just an issue with a configuration file.

Kooka does freeze sometimes when a preview should get displayed, after the scan finished already. The left frame provides the gallery. It seems to be ideal at home or in a small office. So I wish that either vuescan offers a kde or at least a qt gui, or that kooka stops this stupid screen cluttering gimp 1 like gui mode where windows need to get opened all over the screen.

This is not heavy-duty hardware, and it is not intended to be out for lots of use every day. I have already started on that, but postponed it in favour of OCR. Super quality on a CRT, ideal for sending to someone as an attachment to an e-mail — although I do need to play around with formats to find something less than 1MB for my analog modem. Published in Issue of Linux Gazette, December For your last question: However if it is as in kbear, looka if I resize one docked window, the other ones do not adjust, and I end up with either overlapping windows or empty space in my main window, that would drive me mad.


Let me add also the feature request of an easy way to use kookw as a photocopy machine. This is great to hear!!! Click in the sub menu that opened at the entry “Graphics”. You won’t be able to do word searching. But copying has never been a frequent requirement in this SOHO and I have regained a bit of desk space. Yast will handle including the needed libraries to run a program. And they each show you the results of scanning as well as offering a preview scan, again Kooka within ro section inside the window, XSANE starting another window for this.

Already answered Not a question Bad question Other. To move the frames, click and drag the thin double line right above the frame.

Scanning some more pages with grafik tools in windows was often a work of hours, because of the “one-time-call” of the twain-dialog, saving in specific folder and so on.

Abstract Kooka is a KDE application for scanning.
